Surrounded by rolling hills, Cherokee Valley Golf Club has a beautiful setting and temperate climate that draws visitors from all over the state. It feels peacefully tucked away but the course is only minutes from downtown Greenville's attractions. The challenging layout features eleven lakes and more than 50 strategically placed bunkers. The dramatic elevation changes provide even more challenges. It is seemingly a very intimidating golf course but the wide fairways and clean rough make it much more forgiving than it looks. The fifth hole is the golf course's signature. There is a beautiful cascading waterfall on this hole as well as a stunning view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Cherokee Valley G.C. is known almost as much for its practice facility as it is for the golf course. The popular, state-of-the-art facility includes a triple-tiered driving range, two putting greens, and a chipping green.

Fun Course

Great gold course, most of it was very fun with some very exciting holes. There were a few that have significant blind shots and seem a little goofy but overall a great layout. Course was overseeded which is always a plus and greens were in excellent shape. Had recently had a lot of rain but seemed to drain very well.

Hidden Gem

It has been awhile since I have last played this course. I had forgotten how much I love this course. Every hole is set up different in layout, shot shaping and elevation. The fairways were so green and full. The greens were in excellent shape. But, beware. some of the greens seemed to have different grass. Some were coarse and some were smooth. It made playing the speed of the greens always changing and kept you on your toes. I can't recommend the course enough, I won't wait so long to go back again.

Course wasn’t bad but for 50 dollars I expected better fairways were high as the rough.

I love Pete Diabolical courses

Nice course with many challenging holes, it’s all Pete Dye for sure. Has the steepest Par 5 I have ever played. The greens were recovering from being punched but rolled nice. The turf was awesome with the exception of a few bad t boxes possibly from winter kill. This course, like all of the Pete Dye courses I’ve played, are very difficult and a high handy golfer will struggle with the course. It’s a fun course and a great test for a low handy. This course demands accuracy , short game and good putting to go low. Players and staff were very friendly and that’s what makes the Greenville area a great place to live! I would play it more often if it wasn’t a hour and twenty minutes away. If you’re in the area, play the Furman course also, you won’t be disappointed, nicest old school course I’ve ever played, built in the 50’s but LONG... I played both the same day...

Fun course with beautiful views - a couple goofey holes

The course was in very good shape. The greens were fast, smooth and had very few non-repaired ball marks which made the greens great to play on. The greens had lots of slopes valley and undulations. The views were great, especially from hole #8. There is tons of elevation changes all around the course.

There were a lot of blind shots (hole #15 is awful and straight out of a putt putt course (blind tee shot where you can not even see the fairway, you have not target to shoot at and you have no idea where the green is located).

Overall the course conditions were excellent and the course is a ton of fun as well as an EXCELLENT value. I wish they would take a bulldozer to holes 13 and 15, but other than those two holes the course is great. Go play and enjoy!!!

Fun course, cool layout

Cherokee Valley has a really cool layout, w/ no 2 holes the same. Fast, sloping greens, & plateau greens, make this course much tougher than the slope rating shows. Still very fun trying to play it.,& fees are great!
